Bookings for this event have now closed.  Thank you for your interest.

This year's Old Members' Dinner will take place on Saturday 25 September. We are delighted to welcome Old Member and newly elected Honorary Fellow Sir Michael Barber (Modern History, 1974) for a pre-dinner talk with Prof Jane Mellor, Queen's Fellow of Biochemistry. They will discuss themes from his new book Accomplishment: How to Achieve Ambitious and Challenging Things, which includes a case study of Prof Mellor. 

Sir Michael Barber is a global expert on the implementation of ambitious change in large, complicated systems. He has spent many years advising governments, businesses, public and social impact organisations, as well as major sporting teams around the world on how to achieve ambitious goals on time. He was knighted in 2005 for his contribution to improving government, including his work in founding and heading the Prime Minister's Delivery Unit.

We are now in a position to be able to offer a limited number of guest tickets for partners and spouses. Please book your place(s) using the form below.

This year, the dinner will be for Old Members only and tickets cost £60 including wine. Rooms in College for Saturday night, with breakfast the following morning, can be provided at a further charge of £40 per person.
